Eating a Christmas pie:
He put in his thumb,
And took out a plum,
And said, "What a good boy am I!"

SIDE a cock horse
To Banbury Cross,
To see an old woman upon a white horse:
With rings on her fingers,
And bells on her toes.
She shall have music wherever she goes!

THERE was a little man, and he had a little gun

And his bullets were made of lead, lead, lead;

He shot Johnny Sprig through the middle of his wig,

And knocked it right off his head, head, head.

They quite forgot their

SMILKMAN, milkman, where have you been?"
"In Buttermilk Channel, up to my chin;
1 spilt my milk, and spoiled my clothes,
And got a long icicle hung to my nose !"

JOHNNY Armstrong killed a calf;
Peter Henderson got the half;
Willy Wilkinson got the head;
Ring the bell, the calf is dead!

TAFFY was a Welshman, Taffy
was a thief,
Taffy came to my house and
stole a piece of beef;
I went to Taffy's house, Taffy
wasn't home; '
Taffy came to my house and
stole a marrow-bone; "
I went to Taffy's house, Taffy fi

I took the marrow-bone and "'i

LADY BUG, lady bug, fly

Your house is on fire, your

All but one, and her name is Ann,
And she crept under the frying-pan.

"OLD woman, old woman, shall we go a shearing?"
"Speak a little louder, sir, I'm very thick of hearing."
"Old woman, old woman, shall I kiss you dearly?"
"Thank you, kind sir, 1 hear you very clearly!"

THERE was a man
in our town.
SAnd he was won-
^drous wise:
;/ He jumped into a
bramble bush,
And scratched
2 ^St out both
his eyes.

And when he saw
his eyes were out,
-.- With all his might and
He jumped into another bush,
And scratched them in again.

IF a man who turnips cries
Cries not when his father dies,
It is a proof that he would rather
Have a turnip than his father.

SNAIL, Snail, come cut of your hole,
Or else I'll beat you black as a coal.
Snail, Snail, put out your head,
Or else I'll beat you till you're dead.

THE girl in the lane, that couldn't speak plain
Cried Gobble, gobble, gobble:"
The man on the hill, that couldn't stand still,
Went hobble, hobble, hobble.

WHAT care I how black I be,
Twenty pounds will
marry me:
If twenty won't, forty shall-
I am my mother's bouncing girl!

T WELVE pairs hanging high,
Twelve knights riding by-
Each took a pear,
And yet left twelve there.

MISS JANE had a bag,
and a mouse was in it;
She opened the bag, he
was out in a minute.
The cat saw him jump
and run under
the table,
And the dog said,
"Catch him, puss, soon
as you're able.

BARBER, Barber, shave a pig;

,How many hairs will make a wig?

"Four and twenty, that's enough"

Give the poor Barber a pinch of snuff.

ROCK-A-BYE, baby, thy cradle is green;
Father's a nobleman; mother's a queen;
Betty's a lady, and wears a gold ring;
And Johnny's a drummer, and drums for the king.

I HAD a little pony;
His name was Dapple-gray:
I lent him to a lady,
To ride a mile away.
She whipped him, she lashed him,
She rode him through the mire;
I would not lend my pony
For all the lady's hire.

HERE was an
old wcman
lived under
the hill,
And if she's not
gone, she lives
there still.
Baked apples she sold, and '
cranberry pies, -
nArnd she's the old woman that
never told lies!
